Restaurants and bars along Stephen Avenue can begin expanding their patios onto the sidewalk for more space to meet physical distancing requirements, according to Calgary’s mayor.
Starting Friday, the closure of Stephen Avenue to vehicle traffic is being extended into the evening hours throughout the summer to allow the expanded patios to stay open for lunch and dinner crowds, leaving room for pedestrians to stroll. Patios can be expanded to the edge of the sidewalk with enough space between tables to prevent the spread of COVID-19 during Alberta’s economic relaunch, Mayor Naheed Nenshi said Thursday.
